Happy birthday, Mr. Porter!

Today marks 122 years since the great Cole Porter was born in Peru, Indiana. Would that he were still with us, composing classic songs.

We’re marking the occasion by sharing our two favorite recordings of his songs: Jeri Southern‘s sublime rendition of “Ev’ry Time We Say Goodbye” and Artie Shaw‘s seminal recording of “Begin the Beguine” (perhaps our favorite big band recording of all time).
